The opening minutes of the movie are shown to be recorded on a mobile phone camera, and records the characters finding and activating their fathers handy-cam, yet in the closing minutes of the film this same scene is shown with the alternate time-line camera, which now has the mobile phone footage of the siblings finding the original camera.

Found footage movies are often pretty predictable and sketchy, but project almanac isn't. Unlike other movies of this genre, the pace is kinda slow, which is appropriate for the story. When you build a time travel machine, it is normal that it takes multiple attempts before it works. Even though sometimes you may wonder why the characters are still filming their journey, it's not disturbing enough to prevent you from focusing on the plot, which is a good thing. There's also a good love story and some funny moments, in addition to a breath taking last act. I'd compare it to the Canadian movie Chronicles.
Overall you'll have a great time watching this movie, even more if you are familiar with this genre.
